Those are sounds from a rehearsal of “Seussical, The Musical.” The Dr. Seuss-themed show takes to the stage in Sitka today and tomorrow. A group of high school students and recent graduates from across the country have spent the last two weeks putting the show together, as part of the Sitka Fine Arts Camp’s musical theater session.

The musical relies on contributions from 18 of Dr. Seuss’s books — from the well-known “Green Eggs and Ham” to the less famous “McElligot’s Pool.”
